Let's Go!! Rider Week continues with two of my favorite villains.
While most of the "evil generals" that appear in the Kamen Rider series have a militaristic feel to them, I was immediately drawn in by the first general of the Black Satan army. Appearing to be a high ranking Yakuza member and then transforming into his true cycloptic form, Mr. Titan made an immediate impression on me. He would go on clashing with Stronger until losing a fight to the death with the Electric Rider. Thus we met the second general of Black Satan; General Shadow.
Shadow is a villain in the vein of Hakaider; a lone wolf with his own priorities who would sometimes kill his own men to get his way. This personality clashes immediately with the reborn from the dead Hundred-Eyes Titan. In a great bit of character writing and design, these polar opposites would continue to clash over who would be the one to finally kill Kamen Rider Stronger - to the point where they would sabotage each others plans.
Design wise, I mixed Shadow's original costume with his recent design from the All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders film. I like alot about his new look, but his original helmet seems a bit more sinister to me. The new one is a little too streamlined.
